Summer vacations can’t get any better when you have all the time to learn new things. Did you know that you could learn from movies? Yes, you heard that right! Wondering what genre of movies can be entertaining, visually stunning and at the same time make you think? It’s documentaries. These non-fiction films open your eyes to the world and change the way you see it.
For example, did you know that 90% of the processed food in an average supermarket is nothing, but a different form of corn? Documentary film Food, Inc. explores the facts behind the everyday food and how big corporations impact our health. Documentaries capture reality and aid in imparting information or document the past. In yet another example, Disney documentary Oceans explores the marine life of the five oceans of the planet. This visually rich ‘Nature’ documentary captures ocean life like no other.
That’s the thing about documentaries, they never fail to entertain their audience. These films blend information and art to impart education. They open the gates of knowledge that is usually not in the curriculum.
Now, don’t you think you have every reason this summer to watch documentaries?
Keeping this in mind, BYJU’S – The Learning App has come up with a fantastic contest – BYJU’S Docufest-2019. All you have to do is watch documentaries and win goodies. After a lot of screening, we have chosen three movies for three categories (Class 4-6, Class 7-9 and Class 10-12).
